The Indian food, Putu Mayam is a snack eaten with fresh grated coconut and brown sugar or gula Melaka. It is also known as string hoppers and is eaten cold. This sticky noodle like snack is made with pressing the dough through a mould and steamed. It is a very popular snack and sold in many places. Most of us would have eaten it before.
Lately I was introduced by a friend to a stall in Little India that sells this traditional white delicacy together with the unusual brown ones. It is made with adapting the ingredient, biji sawi which many people claim to be healthier as it helps to regulate cholesterol and blood sugar level.
